Webinar Overview:

Companies aren't always aware that their newest hires come to work with an extra set of hands…and minds to help with problem solving- an entire network of them actually (and still 40% of companies block Facebook and Linkedin…or think they do).

Thirty years ago if you read an article that made your job easier and wanted ask a follow up question, thank the author and learn about what he or she was thinking of next, it might have taken a month or more to close the communication loop. Today, in seconds, you can thank them, make your query, get a response  and deploy a Google Agent to instantly supply you with anything they publish.

Finding a job hasn't changed much but the importance of having an employee referral inside the firm you have targeted can now be measured accurately- and it is the difference between a 1/500 chance or a 50/500 chance of getting hired. Which lottery would you enter?

Social network analysis will change organizational structures and supercharge employee performance. What are you doing to develop yours?

This webinar will emphasize 10 networking ideas for work, play and career management.
